Annual Meeting of Life Members 2022

VFW National Home Life Members gathered recently for their annual meeting. The Annual Meeting of Life Members is when we thank outgoing trustees whose terms have ended and welcome our new incoming trustees. Alongside our new trustees, the new board president and vice president is sworn in as well.

During the meeting, Life Members heard an update from Executive Director Mike Wilson, enjoyed a Year-In-Review video, and witnessed newly elected District 6 Trustee Michael Rhew and District 10 Trustee Shirlee Frias be installed.

This year we also said goodbye to Past National Auxiliary President and District 6 Trustee Armithea “Sissy” Borel, who will be a sorely missed presence on the board.
